With more than 15 years experience in the makeup industry, I've had the privilege of being a part of hundreds of special days. I have worked in multiple markets around the United States which brings an abundance of confidence working with any and all ages and ethnicites. In addition to weddings, I've worked in the locker room with the Seattle Seahawks Dancers for the last five years for on-field performances. This experience has allowed me to pinpoint which techniques and products provide the longest lasting, photo ready makeup - rain or shine, indoor or outdoor, close up intimate shots or distant group portraits. Beyond that, I've worked with Reign FC, Seattle Sounders FC, Global Citizen, Zulily and many other top companies in commercial, sports and fashion to increase my knowledge and create an all inclusive clientele.

Timeless and beautiful wedding makeup!
I can't say enough about Hailey. First of all, she traveled from Seattle to Wisconsin to do my makeup. Secondly, she offered me a trial run to ensure I was happy with the look prior to my wedding day, which I took her up on. She listened to my ideas and looked at some pictures I had found and put her own ideas into it also. I loved my makeup, it was natural and timeless. I felt so beautiful and got so many compliments on my makeup. She also managed to hide my bags under my eyes and made me look well rested (even though I had been up all night worrying about the weather!) It was humid on my wedding day and while my hair flattened out, my makeup held until the very end! She left me with a lipstick to touch up my lips, and overall made me feel special and important. I wouldn't choose anyone else if I had to do it over again, and you shouldn't either. You get what you pay for, and Hailey is worth all of it!Sent on 10/07/2019

My favorite makeup artist!
Hailey was an absolute dream! She was so sweet, easy to talk to and very open to any changes/criticism in our trial. She was professional and had the best products! She encouraged speaking up about making changes during the trial which was so helpful because sometimes I just go with the flow too much.
Day of she brought such a calming presence and seemed to really care about each of my party’s preferences on style. Hailey spent a full hour on my make up perfecting it and then after everyone else was finished she offered touch ups and highlighting chest/shoulders. She also gives the bride a full lipstick of whatever color was decided during the trial for touch ups throughout the night!
Hailey’s prices were very reasonable especially for the amazing quality she provided! I received her name as a recommendation from a friend and I will continue to recommend her to more friends as well as contact her for any other life events in the future! I am so happy I found her!Sent on 04/07/2020

The absolute best!!
Hailey is so amazing! She did my wedding day makeup, along with makeup for 8 bridesmaids and my mom. She made my bridal beauty vision come to life, and it was definitely the most beautiful I have ever felt in my life (while still feeling like myself). Not to mention that my makeup stayed perfect for a full 12 hours without ever feeling heavy or uncomfortable! I also love that she pays attention to the small details - picking out the perfect false lashes for my eye shape, highlighting my shoulders and collarbone to stand out in my strapless dress, and providing a lip color for touch-ups throughout the day, among many other things. My bridesmaids and mom all looked absolutely stunning, too. My mom never wears makeup and is super picky, and she loved the natural, subtle look that Hailey gave her. I was really impressed by how efficient and organized Hailey is - she had a schedule prepared and made sure all the girls were ready with time to spare. She is also so fun to talk to and created a relaxed environment on a day that can otherwise be so stressful. I am so grateful Hailey was part of my wedding day, and I would 100% recommend her to any bride! I know that I will be looking for excuses to have her do my makeup again in the future :)Sent on 09/19/2019
